I think it's definitely time to invest in a new scanner. The background is white and at the top of each page is a piece of torn white-decorated paper. The translation of the words is: Springtime in Paris...Fills my heart with flowers! Thank you Linda K. for the translation! Merci!!
I did something completely different for these pages, but I wasn't liking how it was turning out at all. So I just started playing with some torn paper and some flower stamps and this is what came out. I liked these a lot better - even if the scans make them look yuk. :(
